As part of its mission to support even more children in need, Mission 500 – having already met its original goal of sponsoring 500 children around the world – is continuing its efforts to assist children in crisis. This year the charity organization marks the 5th anniversary of the Security 5K/2K run/walk, a cornerstone of Mission 500’s fundraising efforts and a staple event at ISC West held on the second day of the conference. The event draws on support from professionals in the security industry, working with World Vision as the implementation partner.

Present at the 2014 5K/2K event will be Dr. Diego Alejandro Garcia, Director of the Colombian Ministry of Health Vaccination Program. Dr. Garcia, a pediatrician, was sponsored at the age of 3 through World Vision. He will speak at the event on his personal experience with Mission 500 and discuss how it helps to create better and brighter futures for youngsters around the world. Mike Perkins, Vice President of Global Security Solutions for Anixter, will also be present to share his perspectives of his trip to Tanzania this month. He was awarded this trip as top fundraiser for the 2013 Security 5/2K.

The Security 5K Reception and Awards Ceremony will take place on April 3rd at the Sands Expo and Convention Center on the ISC show floor. In addition to recognizing top fundraisers, the awards ceremony will highlight Mission 500's achievements – and set the stage for even bigger things to come. Organising sponsors and the Mission 500 organization will also present awards to runners in different age categories and to the top male and female runners.

“This has been a truly fantastic charitable event that has brought the professional security industry together unlike any other over the past four years,” said George Fletcher, Advisory Council Member/Volunteer, Mission 500. “As we celebrate the 5th anniversary of the Mission 500 5K/2K, enthusiasm continues to build with the corporations and individuals that make up this generous industry. This year we will also feature a special incentive whereby the top 5 fundraisers will be rewarded with a trip to a World Vision project in Mexico.”

Mission 500 has spent years concentrating security industry efforts to aid no fewer than 500 children through World Vision's humanitarian efforts. World Vision, Mission 500’s parent entity, is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children, families and their communities worldwide by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. In partnership, World Vision and Mission 500 work together around the world as well as in the US.

The Mission 500 Security 5K/2K event at the 2014 ISC West Expo in Las Vegas is a collaboration between organising sponsors United Publications, publishers of Security Systems News and Security Director News; Reed Exhibitions, proprietors of ISC Expos; and Mission 500. Core sponsors of the 2014 Mission 500 5K/2K are Alarm.com, Altronix Corporation, Axis Communications, Ditek, HID Global, Honeywell, LRG Marketing Communications, Pelco by Schneider Electric, and Safety Technology International. Additional sponsors include Cops Monitoring, Digital Monitoring Products (DMP), Samsung, Brivo, Freeman, Monitronics, Qolsys, Bolide Technology Group, Security Industry Association, and PSA Security Network. The race is operated by Las Vegas Running Company, a race management company that stages around 25 road races each year across Southern Nevada.

Mission 500 will also be involved in a number of other initiatives at ISC West. These currently include the AIREF golf tournament sponsored by ESA, an HID-sponsored school kit build, a pasta feed sponsored by Qolsys, a pledge by Altronix to donate $2 to Mission 500 for every visitor card swipe at its booth, a COPS Monitoring event benefiting Mission 500, and a Pelco hospitality event featuring Mission 500.
